The beach itself is a beautiful one, but it is not recommended to visit on rainy and windy days. Very quiet place and clean beach. children will appreciate playing on the sandy beach there.

The access is though a well marked narrow lane. The beach has no shade so bring your own umbrella. The only other people are those who live there. Very quiet and calm.
